with a 2 gallon boil how did you obtain 20 IBUs? did you use late extract addition? I'm gonna boil this at 4 gallons and try to hit 20 IBU

What's the alpha acid for your hops? Yours might be lower.

I'm using your numbers.

I realized it's because you didn't use Tinseth. I adjusted my recipe

thanks!

so I just brewed this today, and I totally did not read that it was caramel pils malt. I used .5lbs carapils....

is there an amount of caramel extract I can put in after fermentation to get the caramel flavoring I so very much lost?

You are OK, caramel pils malt is a 5 SRM crystal malt. Its such a small amount that I doubt that would make a BIG difference. I once used 50/50 carapils & 10L. Leave it be, you will be fine as it is now.

Don't expect a loss of caramel flavor by not having this. This more of a color thing. Caramel Color... Don't worry or fark it up. It will be good to go as it is now.
